CUPA-HR Journal, v54 n3 p12-15 Fall-Win 2003
It is no secret that higher education is a highly competitive labor market. Colleges and universities are in constant competition to attract and retain top talent. One way some institutions are gaining an edge is by offering career services to partners of relocating new hires. These services can range from resume critiquing to community networking to placing the partner in a position at the university if the partner is in academia. The authors of this article polled a number of institutions across the United States and Canada to learn what types of dual-career program services are being offered, to whom they are being offered, and how they are being marketed.
